       C       (b)    Am       D             G      
Now, 'ere's a little story. To tell it is a must
C          (b)   Am       D                G
About an unsung hero that moves away your dust.
      Am            (c)      Am            (c)
Some people earn a fortune, others make a mint.
Am                (c)          D                   C
My old man don't earn much, in fact, he's flippin' skint.


    C                                           G
Oh, my old man's a dustman, he wears a dustman's hat
He wears gor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat.
He looks a proper 'nana in 'is great big hobnailed boots
      G                                                         C
He's got such a job to pull them up that he calls 'em daisy(?) roots

    C                                        G
One day whilst in a hurry, he missed a lady's bin
                                     G7               C
He 'adn't gone but a few yards when she chased after him
"What game do you think you're playing?" she cried right from the
      G                               G7             C
"You missed me! Am I too late?" "No, jump up on the cart!"

Is more or less the way I would do it - The (b) and (c) in the intro are Bass notes as a sort of passing run to the next chord .
Hope that makes sense , but no doubt some one will correct me on the chords !

Help required from the 'catters. I have had the words to this old 'classic' floating about for some years but lack the guitar chords to accompany it.
Is there someone out there who can supply the chords for the song - preferably with the chords placed at the spot where the chord changes occur.
For those who don't know me I am an ABI "muso" who can no longer remember chord progressions thanks to head-injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Thanks to all

Does anyone know the chords to My Old Man's A Dustman? The tunes the same as Uncle Joes Mint Balls hence the title.

I have also requested these on the Uncle Joes Mint Balls thread before anyone says anything!

Ta, Ian.
